According to correspondent, Yolandé Stander, Eden mayor Memory Booysen has resigned as a Bitou councillor after the balancing act of the two positions became increasingly tricky.
Booysen, who also served as a DA PR councillor in Bitou, said he decided to focus on his work as Eden mayor and resign as a Bitou councillor.
Although the decision had been an emotional one, it had to be done as he could not give both positions his full attention.
He added that there would be no by-election for his seat as a "swap" would be made with a councillor from the Eden Municipality. Mpumelelo Ndayi would take over Booysen's role in Bitou.
